From the Griffin house to yours—a one-of-a-kind guide to enjoying the most wonderful freakin' time of the year!
Peter Griffin, everyman extraordinaire, the holidays are the best time of year. With endless Christmas specials (a couch potato's dream!), plenty of family merriment, and eggnog that's heavy on the booze, what's not to like? In this unique Yuletide treasure, the Fat Man offers up a host of holiday memories from the Griffin household as well as hilarious tips for merrymaking the Family Guy way.
From Peter's childhood Christmas recollections (he never let a burned cookie go to waste) to a tour of Quahog at Christmastime (warning: don't look in Quagmire's stocking), to the Griffin family's most sacred holiday traditions, this book has something for everyone on your holiday list, regardless of whether they've been naughty or nice.

Merry Freakin' Christmas
Let's be practical here: In the actual series itself, Peter Griffin does not have the attention span to write a full book. However, for the sake of argument we'll assume that he does - and this Guide, which is written almost entirely in Peter's voice, reflects the fact that he does tend to ramble and go off on tangents. In other words, if you're not a fan of random humor, you won't enjoy this book.
That said, however, fans of Family Guy will find this hilarious and a worthy addition to their collection of holiday books. It covers everything: Christmas specials (which somehow detracts into burning an image of Halle Berry's breasts into the screen), decorations (stay away from Quagmire's house) and Christmases past (Lois promises she won't go crazy this year). The book also features guest essay from nearly every Quahog resident and member of the Griffin family, which are all very well-done and in character. There are also festive pictures straight out of the TV show and many humorous side notes from Peter. Any fan of the TV show will truly appreciate the work that has gone into this.
One last warning: In case it's not evident from the descriptors above, this book is not for children. The humor is very raunchy and very adult, so give the kiddos something else to keep them occupied (I recommend "A Peanuts Christmas"). But if you watch the TV show regularly and consider yourself a fan, then this is the ultimate holiday buy. As Peter would say, "Freakin' Sweet!"
It was very funny
To quote my husband "it was a very funny book" It's a good gift for a Family Guy fan.
